Donald Trump went full Michael Moore last Saturday night in the CBS debate, accusing George W. Bush of lying about the Iraq War, and completely adopting the Left’s no “weapons of mass destruction” slogan.
But wait …as it turns out, when Trump keeps saying he was “always” against the Iraq War, that might not necessarily be true.
Here’s the audio:
For months, Donald Trump has claimed that he opposed the Iraq War before the invasion began — as an example of his great judgment on foreign policy issues.
But in a 2002 interview with Howard Stern, Donald Trump said he supported an Iraq invasion.
In the interview, which took place on Sept. 11, 2002, Stern asked Trump directly if he was for invading Iraq.
“Yeah I guess so,” Trump responded. “I wish the first time it was done correctly.”
Anderson Cooper asked him about this Buzzfeed story during tonight’s CNN townhall, and he brushed it off by saying “I may have said that. I was a businessman.” Oh OK. Nothing to see here.
